PowerPoint templates can help you design interesting, compelling, and professional-looking presentations. They contain content and design elements that you can use as a starting point when creating a new presentation. All the formatting is complete; you just add the content.

Apply a template to a new presentation

  1. Open PowerPoint, and you'll see a set of standard templates in the gallery. If you're already working in PowerPoint, click File > New from Template to see the templates.

    (In version 2011, you then select All under the Templates category.)

  2. You can choose one of the standard templates, or, if you want to find a more specific template, type a search phrase in the Search All Templates box, such as business plan, report, business proposal, training, or calendar. You'll find hundreds of options from templates.office.com that you can use as a starting point for your presentation.

  3. When you find the template you want to use, double-click it, or select it and click Create.

  4. The template is downloaded to PowerPoint, and you are ready to begin working on your presentation.
